Black & white Cookies . كوكيز الفانيليا الطريه . Amerikaner

Amerikaner is a very popular cake like cookies , or you can call them cookie like small cakes ! The exact translation is "American" ! It's very popular in kids' birthdays here in Germany , every child loves them , I used to hear from the kids "I ate Amerikaner today" & I've always thought what was the "american" they ate ! they used to describe it & I never knew weather that was a cake or a cookie! I asked a German friend & she explained what was it for me & she even showed them to me ,they are every where in Bakery shops & they are sold frozen in Supermarkets ! since than I started searching for recipes & making them for kids with different toppings. Original Cookies are  American & are called Black & White cookies , because they are always half black & half white . Here in Germany they are very popular in Birthdays covered with Sugar glaze ( icing ) & smarties chocolate ! you can even make faces over the suagr glaze using melted chocolate , or colored sugar glaze . you can also cover only with chocolate instead of sugar icing !
Here I did mine for my daughter who loves pink , so I covered it with Sugar glaze (icing ) & splinkeled some pink & white sugar sprinkles . It's delicious & very soft like small Cakes bit in the size of a cookie.The recipe is so easy , hope you all try it & like it .

It's fun & easy in preparation, they remind me of the snakes we used to do with clay when we were young, you make a lot of snakes while doing the Vanillekipferl !!!
